Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a great start to your week. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I have a huge sweet tooth. The dessert course is one of my favorite dayparts. I never pass up something sweet.
So when the folks at Cinnaholic reached out to me to invite me to visit their Atlanta location, I couldn’t wait to try this place. Cinnaholic is a vegan cinnamon roll shop with franchises around the country. This isn’t your typical cinnamon roll shop, all of the rolls are vegan,egg-free, made from scratch and include all-natural ingredients. The thing I loved the most about this dessert shop is that they let you customize your own cinnamon rolls.Cinnaholic has several varieties of icings and over 30 toppings to choose from. So if you want a pecan pie cinnamon rolls you can make one with a bourbon flavored icing and top it with pecans. That’s what I did! Sounds like a fun experience right?
Cinnaholic is definitely a place to take your kids this summer or a creative date night idea. Not in Atlanta? Cinnaholic has franchises popping up all over the country. Check to see where the nearest location is to you.

If you haven’t heard by now, it’s National Doughnut Day! In honor of this yummy holiday I’m sharing my favorite doughnut shops around the Atlanta area.

Your guide to Atlanta doughnut shops
1. Revolution Doughnuts
Located in Decatur, Revolution Doughnuts has a special place in my heart. I love getting their Rose chai tea lattes with almond milk while enjoying their Salted Caramel Doughnut. If you are planning to go on Saturday or Sunday, I recommend getting there early because they typically run out. My other favorite doughnut flavors from Revolution are the Dark Chocolate, Cinnamon Sugar and Fresh Peach. They also have gluten-free doughnuts as well.
2. Sublime Doughnuts
Sublime Doughnuts is one of Atlanta’s most popular doughnut shops. They have two locations one in Midtown and one in Brookhaven. Sublime is known for its unique flavors and shaped doughnuts. My favorite flavors are Smores, Reese’s Peanut Cup and the Ying Yang Twist.
3. Doughnut Dollies
If you live outside the perimeter, you should check out Doughnut Dollies in Marietta. They opened in early 2016 and have been selling out ever since. My favorites are the Red Velvet, Lemon Lavender and Apple Ginger Cranberry fritter.
4. Bonglaze Doughnuts
I just recently discovered Bonglaze doughnuts when I ordered them from UberEats. They are located in Brookhaven and are opening a location in Buckhead soon. I love the Cotton Candy, Meyer Lemon, and Campfire doughnuts.

Last month I had the opportunity to attend a private tour of the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I had visited the aquarium in the past for a few meetings but never actually toured the facility. So I was excited when this opportunity came my way. The Georgia Aquarium just debuted a new sea lion and dolphin exhibit. If you live in Atlanta or are planning a trip this summer to the city I recommend you check out the aquarium. Spend the day in the area enjoying all of the towns lovely museums and the Georgia Aquarium.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is all around us today. I’ve seen flower and balloon carts on every corner this weekend. Although I’m not a huge fan of this holiday because I think love should be cherished everyday and gifts are such a small part of what true love really feels like. It’s great to see so many people celebrating love.
I’m excited to share this collaboration with Free People. I usually like to keep dates simple and low key by cooking together at home or going to a concert. But I do love getting dressed up every once in a while for date nights not just on Valentine’s Day. This red satin dress from Free People is sexy but comfortable for a night out on the town.
Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite date night spots in Atlanta.
1. Check out a show at the Historic Fox Theatre.
2. Enjoy Friday night Jazz at The High Museum of Art.
3. Spend summer nights at Chastain Park watching a concert.
4.Take a bike ride on Atlanta’s Beltline and enjoy a nice meal at Ponce City Market.
5. Take a cooking class at Preserving Place.
